thomas cruyl: cwatch


‘cwatch’ by thomas cruyl from belgium is one of the 150 shortlisted entries from the recent
designboom competition ‘the intelligent hand’ in collaboration with macef.

‘cwatch’ is a tribute to the tradition of swiss artisan watch making.
this timepiece combines the technical art of its internal mechanisms with the craftsmanship
of another artisan technique – a decorative wooden exterior.
the result is a hand watch which resembles that of a cuckoo clock.

the jury is almost finished making their selections and the results of the competition will be
unveiled on january 15th, 2010.
